Carlow IT Construction Students Visit Alcrete

The Alcrete team were delighted to welcome 2 groups of students from Carlow Institute of Technology on Friday last for a behind the scenes tour of our cutting-edge factory.

The first group of Carlow IT construction students, currently studying for an MSc in Management in the Built Environment, and the second group a mix of 1st, 2nd and 3rd years from Civil Engineering and Construction Management, were keen to learn more about Alcrete’s innovative approach to system building.

The visit kicked off with a presentation on the company’s history, position within the Shay Murtagh Group, and unique process of design, manufacture, delivery and installation. The Carlow IT construction students learned about operations and project management, facilities and the company’s approach to Continuous Improvement. They were then given a guided tour of the facility for a first-hand look at the manufacturing process.

Undoubtedly we will see these students again as they progress in their professional careers and we look forward to our next visit from the college. For more information or if you would like to organise a tour of the facility please contact technical@shaymurtagh.ie
